OOTD Green Shirt Dress









Dress: c/o Dorothy Perkins (ON SALE!) | Shoes: Chinese Laundry (similar here & here | really cute wedge option here) | Belt: Gap (similar here & here) Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: Alex & Ani | Lipstick: Fiery by Stila

Is anyone ready for SPRING?  Last weekend’s weather here in Florida was absolutely amazing!  The days were the right combination of sunny and warm.  I would imagine this would be what spring time is like for the rest of the country.  February, March, and April are the best months in this usually hot and humid state.  So, even though Mike was still a little sick after coming back from his business trip, it was nice to get out of the house and enjoy the weather.  This Dorothy Perkins shirt dress was just perfect for a Saturday stroll followed by lunch.  The green color reminds me of the vivid spring landscape that is making its way back slowly.  Let’s hope that the predictions of a long winter don’t hold true!

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you have a fabulous day!

xo, Maria

    I think green is definitely your color! The choice of red lipstick and red polish really makes it pop. I love this one!

    That’s such a beautiful dress. I wish we had such good weather here. Spring seems so far away when you still have 30cm of snow on the ground.

    Love everything about that dress María. From the color to the style, it is all around chicness and perfection. Love the shoes and the belt around your waist. Great ensemble for a girls outing or a date with the better half:-) Have an amazing week and you look beautiful as always. XOXO, Jeannette

    I’m ready for spring as well. The weather in San Diego has been quite nice; it’s practically already spring. I love your bold green shirt dress. Green is my favorite color!

    That dress is a great color on you. I love the detailing of the shoes matched up with the belt. And my favorite accessory? The starbucks. And I ask, please send some warm weather up to the Northeast so we can melt this snow!!

    LOVE this color! I saw a similar dress in Target the other day and wasn’t sure how much I’d wear it, I might need to go back and snag it.
    Oh, and I agree about the weather. This is my second winter in Florida and I will never get tired of these temps!
